AudioBus is Released – Bridging the Gap Between your Music Apps!
After thirteen months in development, A Tasty Pixel have finally released AudioBus – their new app that will change the way we all make music on the iPad and iPhone, giving you the ability to connect apps together in the same way that cables connect your hardware synths, effects units, and multi-track recorders.
Seriously, if you are making music with your iOS device then you need AudioBus. We had a chance to use it earlier this week and was amazed at how simple it was to start routing apps through one another. We were soon adding distortion, delays, phasers and reverb effects from JamUp to the output of Sunrizer Synth and then routing the resulting audio into Loopy or Multitrack DAW to record the final performance. Used in conjunction with Virtual MIDI (the internal routing of MIDI between apps) it really does turn the iOS platform into a serious music production environment. The developers behind it should be congratulated on its seamless implementation (it actually feels like part of the operating system).
You’ll find a up-to-date list of apps that are currently compatible with AudioBus here. We have been told that another 25 additional developers, including Moog and Intua (the developers of BeatMaker 2, are busy adding Audiobus support and that over 750 additional iOS Audio developers have requested the Audiobus SDK so that they can add support to their apps.
Audiobus is now available on the App Store for $9.99 USD (although you might still have to wait a few hours until it becomes available in your territory). For more details visit audiob.us.

☆☆☆ We’re exceptionally proud to announce that Apple’s GarageBand is now compatible with Audiobus!
To celebrate we’re putting Audiobus on a 50% sale for limited time. ☆☆☆
With Audiobus, the revolutionary new inter-app audio routing system, you can connect your Audiobus-compatible music apps together, just like virtual cables.
With a simple and clean interface, easily connect the output of one Audiobus-compatible app into the input of another. Use Audiobus to play a synthesizer live into a looper or multi-track recorder, or use one app to manipulate the live output of another.
You’ve never before been able to use your apps together like this.

➤ Evolver.fm/Gizmodo: ‟Audiobus will let you play the drum sounds you like in one app and record them in another app, all while keeping the drums in time. Or it could let you play your actual guitar through one app to apply an effect and output it in the sampler of another app.”
➤ Music Radar: ‟It's what so many iOS music makers want: to be able to use multiple apps at the same time, mixing together the audio from each of them into a single project.”
➤ Create Digital Music: ‟[Audiobus] finally helps you make sense of your collection of apps. They make each other more powerful, rather than just crowding space on the app screen and competing with one another.”
